Meteorologists are trying to identify the first tropical cyclones (TCTs) to strike the US this year.
A number of them have already made landfall in the US and several more are on the way.
Here’s what you need to know to make an educated decision.1.
Katrina will become a hurricane in SeptemberKatrina is expected to become a tropical storm early next week.
That’s when it will become Category 1, which is a category 5 hurricane.2.
It’s likely to hit more than a dozen statesThe hurricane is likely to impact a number of states, but there’s no set timetable for where it will hit.
Meteorologists have been predicting a number to begin with.
It’ll hit Florida, Texas, Louisiana and the Mississippi River Valley.
But it’ll likely strike at least two other states as well: Louisiana and Georgia.
That means the storm could hit at least nine states, including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi and the Virgin Islands.3.
It won’t be the first TCT to hitThe last tropical storm to hit the US was Hurricane Joaquin in 2005.
The next one to hit was Hurricane Gustav in 2009.
But that one was so powerful that it actually brought down buildings in New York City and New Jersey.
Katrina will be a Category 5 storm that’s stronger than Joaquin.4.
The hurricane will be strongest in the AtlanticThe storm will make landfall in eastern Atlantic states, where it’ll be strongest.
The storm will likely track northeastward from the Dominican Republic.
It will be the second largest hurricane in the world and will make a significant impact on the Atlantic coast of the United States.5.
It could be worse than JoaoJose in 2010The strongest hurricane to hit this part of the world, Jose, made landfall on the island of Hispaniola in 2010.
It left behind massive damage and death, but Jose was only a tropical depression, meaning it didn’t have hurricane force winds.
It was also the first hurricane to make landfall on land in the Dominican republic, a region with limited infrastructure and infrastructure needs.
It is expected that Katrina could be a more powerful storm.
But because of its size, the storm is unlikely to reach the coast of Haiti and the Dominican islands.6.
It should be easier to forecastKatrina’s track is likely a function of a couple of factors: the amount of time that’s passed since the last tropical cycloon and how strong the storm has become.
The more time passed, the more accurate the forecast will be.
The last time the US experienced a hurricane this powerful was Hurricane Andrew in 2011.
This storm left a path of destruction in parts of the Bahamas, Bahamas, Florida, Florida Keys and the Bahamas Sea.
The path of Katrina is a lot less dramatic than Andrew, so forecasting Katrina correctly is more difficult.
But the forecast is better than before because it’s closer to the center of the storm and has more time to build.7.
It has a chance to be even more damaging than JoaquínHurricane Jose is a Category 4, which means it will likely have winds as strong as Hurricane Andrew.
Katina will be even stronger than Jose, but it’ll still be a tropical system.
That will make it more dangerous for people and businesses in the Caribbean, the eastern Caribbean and parts of Florida.
The Atlantic is currently the most populated area in the United Sates, so the area where the hurricane will hit is the most exposed.
That could cause a lot of damage to the economy and infrastructure in the areas it hits.8.
Katineses are rareKatineses, which are remnants of tropical storms that have formed on land, are relatively rare in the American tropics.
A few of them did make landfall, but none of them were Category 3 or 4.
Katinese are rare because the majority of tropical cyclons form in the Pacific Ocean, so they’re much less likely to form in this part and can’t reach the Atlantic.9.
Katinses are not expected to be as powerful as Joaquins stormsThe most powerful tropical cyclon to strike land in history was Hurricane Jose, which made landfall near the town of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, in 1985.
This was a Category 2 storm.
Hurricane Joaquin, which also made landfall at the same time, made its closest landfall on Haiti in 1989, but the two storms combined had winds as much as 150 miles per hour (260 kilometers per hour).
Katinese, which have been documented as strong enough to make a direct hit on a skyscraper, were never seen.
The closest known instance of a tropical typhoon was a typhoon named Typhoon Nani, which hit the Philippines in 2004.10.
Katinases are expected to affect many placesA tropical storm in the eastern US could also impact many places, including parts of Texas, New York, the Midwest, Florida and southern California.
